Mount Sinai and the Sermon on the Mount

world lasts no jot or tittle of the Law shall pass away until they all, all the Law's merest jots and tittles, shall be accomplished…. The words are very emphatic. The 'all' — standing in correlation with the 'one' of the 'one jot' and 'one tittle' — declares that all the jots and all the tittles of the Law shall be accomplished…. A time shall come when in this detailed perfection, the Law shall be observed…. In accordance with Jesus' instruction we ask 'Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done as in Heaven so on Earth!' So far from coming to abrogate the Law, He comes then to get the Law kept -not merely to republish it in…its most deeply cutting and widely reaching interpretation but to reproduce it in actual lives [and] to write it on the hearts of men and in their actual living…. His purpose in coming is not accomplished in merely completing the Law. It finds its fulfilment in bringing men completely to keep the completed Law."
